  1. Again, I am Sorry, please excuse me, I did not mean to offend you or for this to come across that way. I should have been more upbeat and said simply that we are never bored on HAL and are always interested & enjoy all the activities on HAL. That is my opinion.

  3. Wow, what a presumptuous post. We are never bored on HAL and are always interested & enjoy all the activities on HAL. I am sorry that you are not able to find anything that engages you, but please do not try to categorize that which you do not understand.
  4. i am so happy that you and your spouse have recovered. My co-worker still cannot smell and she recovered in July. I feel if we all mask, wash, distance and vaccinate, we will all be on the road to some sort of normalcy. i would have never guessed i would live during a pandemic. wishing you and yours the best.
  5. except for the loss of taste and smell, i suppose you are right. anything is always possible.
  6. 82 and still going to the gym and swimming, how great is that? I applaud you. i hope i am still as vivacious at your age. take care, keep up the good work, and hope to see you on board!
  7. ...i am sorry to hear that. Honestly, i have to wear a mask 8 hrs a day at work, and it is not that bad. I can take it off when i am alone, or eating. Just be careful and take precautions and things will get better, i promise. did you get your vaccines yet? Happy Cruising, and see you on board one day, I hope..
  8. I almost did not chime in here, but i hear this a lot, and not just on Cruise Critic; people thinking that they already had Covid. Trust me, you would have known. Bronchitis is Bronchitis; a contagious virus, and not a lot of fun. People were not masking or distancing even when the Corona Virus was announced at the end of January. I would think that you would have been tested for a virus and tested positive for SARS if you had Covid. Masking, distancing and washing is always a good policy when you are traveling with that many people using the same spaces. It will not bother to mask.
  9. So funny, ironically enough, I posted a question similar some time ago, asking about the menus and experiences some have had and asking for input. You might be able to find that aged thread with a similar title. There is a roll call you should check out, of course, mostly discussing excursions, but there are a few good points about about this cruise mixed in there. We are loyal to HAL, and our longest before we booked this was 18 days. We have been to Hawaii a few times before, but this our 30th anniversary and are we wanted this special experience. We are ready to start taking much longer cru
  10. So jealous of your Neptune Selection. I wish I could speak to that, but we have had staterooms forward on deck five and felt the waves breaking on rough seas and the general motion of the ocean. On the Eurodam we have had an aft balcony on the same deck and felt the vibrations of the propulsion, however, only occasionally was it noticeable or mildly annoying. We noticed it mostly going in or out of ports. The trade off for the wrap around deck is the view; well worth it! We have never had a Neptune Suite (despite DW really wanting one) but have had corner afts on the Rotterdam twice, and Aft
  11. Until then, may we all Remember!
  12. To have it all, or feel as if you do. To get to the point of embarkation, all agitated and excited, outside of yourself and generally so stoked to be embarking that you cannot sit still. To drink that ship in, if it is new, or to feel welcomed back if you have sailed her before. To feel as though you know each rhythm, each cadence, each motion , every step that brings you closer to luggage, ship, cabin, steward, home, spa, meal, comfort, deck, and sea. To watch that giant piece of land float by you, slip below the horizon. To see that sunset/ sunrise, to have that weightless feeling of levity
  13. good question. If this is your first signature suite and your not sure of the "new normal" the spaciousness inside and the outside veranda are great for relaxing and well worth it.
